PARTNER SPOTLIGHT: MEET NICO, FEATURED ARTIST AT ENDERLY

Meet Nico Arte, featured artist at the Enderly Coffee Shop.


Nico Arte, featured artist at Enderly Coffee Shop in Charlotte, NC

Originally from Colombia, Nico’s work is inspired by the art he grew up seeing everywhere he went. According to Nico, his pieces are a mix of abstract, folk art, and architectural design – he hasn’t quite put his finger on what his style is called, other than to call it a “colorful palette of happiness”.

The folk art in Colombia, specifically, inspired Nico due to its emphasis on storytelling, community, and cultural traditions rather than the formality of more academic styles. It seemed like a natural fit, then, to display Nico’s art at the Enderly shop.

As luck would have it, family (specifically their kids!) brought Tony and Nico together. When Tony learned more about Nico and his work, he invited him to check out the space. According to Nico, it was love at first sight. The community at Enderly’s coffee shop – both employees and customers – felt like the exact type of people who would appreciate and enjoy seeing Nico’s art.

Each of the pieces displayed at Enderly’s shop evoke the theme of community – specifically the journey of the immigrant; coming to America and being embraced by a new group of family and friends. In Nico’s mind, the coffee shop is a similar type of experience; a place where people from all backgrounds can come together over a shared interest.

Interested in seeing Nico’s work? It’s all on display (and for sale!) at the shop right now: 2620 Tuckaseegee Rd.
